Argentina has selected US-based seabed survey company Ocean Infinity to bolster the search for the nation’s submarine ARA San Juan (S-42).
The Argentine Ministry of Modernisation (Ministerio de la Modernización) accepted Ocean Infinity’s USD7.5 million bid on 6 August to assist the search, according to an acquisition order posted on the government agency’s website.
